    Would be nice to seem to try something different.

    The current tactic isn’t really working as the last few windows show.

    The alternative is to go in early and pay over the odds to secure a player in transfer fee and wages and I'm not sure the club can or is willing to operate in that manner.

    Firstly it’s not just money, it’s time and focus. If Levy is dealing with Mace and a million and one things to do with the build that is less time to negotiate cunning transfers. Secondly, he more or less says we need to sell to buy (for our targets which are presumably more than the cash we have). We’ve known we needed to sell to buy for some time.

    Being seen as weak financially will put the club at a disadvantage when entering each and every commercial deal

    It would hasten clubs interested in our players to make approaches for them and would mean it's harder to sell the clubs short to medium term potential to players here who we want to keep.

    Whereas there's zero tangible benefit to counteract those points from what i can see - those supporters who want to complain about our position will do so anyway and will soon forget being told the 'truth' on finances by the club.

    This for me as well, why open himself up to the abuse he gets from a few fans because he has not made the moves in the transfer market they desire.

    I have no idea where the term “ S p u r s y” came from or who coined the term but I don’t believe it’s anything to do with luck. For me, it messing up good positions and opportunities and falling short at the last or second to last hurdle. Losing 5-1 to Newcastle on the final day of the season in 2015/16. Ok finishing in 3rd place after being second for so long isn’t unheard of and teams often become demoralised when the title is gone but to lose as we did so spectacularly, against a team of 10 men who had been relegated doesn’t look great does it?!

    If you ask me would i rather be in our position or someone like West Ham or Everton for example then of course I’d rather be in our position. We’ve wrestled our way to become a player at the top table in arguably the toughest league in the world. That said, we often freeze and fall short when we have a chance to achieve something or put pressure on title rivals. I worry that the Burnley game was a turning point for the season and Poch losing it was simply frustration on his part as he knew the title was gone. Reminds me of the Gallas meltdown when he played for scum and cried on the pitch at St. Andrews. Ok Poch didn’t cry and it wasn’t anywhere near as embarrassing but it would appear that the Burnley loss was a psychological blow to the club. And don’t forget we had our best player and talisman returning from injury but we didn’t turn up.

    Jurgen - don't forget Cheatski just lost to Everton and Man Utd just lost to Wolves. So 'C h e l s y'. So 'U n i t e y'.

    And it was very lucky for some it wasn’t also Poolsy!

    Poolsy is when you shouldn't have won, but still do thanks to incompetent refs, unbelievable mistakes by your opponent or just sheer luck.
